ABOUT THE COMMUNITY:
The Village of Chipman, is located on the banks of the Salmon River, and at the head of Grand Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the Maritime Provinces. The village itself is located around 73.4 kilometres from the capital city of  Fredericton.
Chipman maintains a peaceful, rural setting while offering year-round recreation, community events, and easy access to all needed services.
Historically, Chipman's industrial base was grounded in forestry, coal and brick. The tradition continues with the ultra-modern facilities of J.D. Irving Woodlands Ltd. and Grand Lake Timber Ltd, which process much of the abundant local timber, which is still the main focus of the area's economy.

Chipman is centrally located, a hub to the major cities of Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Miramichi. But what makes it really special is its fine people and outstanding community spirit!
